    ok so on my mac book box it says i can share my main memory (i upgraded to 2 gigs) with my 64 mb intel gfx card. i have been looking around on google and people have been saying that you have to get into a bios (no clue)
    but i want to have some of my main memory go to the graphics card so i can have better performance when i am playing games.

    can someone please give me a tutorial real fast, or at least a site that can help me out to get more vram.

    Lesson over

    Other lesson

    There is no BIOS on in Intel Mac
    OSX manages the allocation of VRAM itself

    The graphics card will use more system ram if needed.
    No, I think someone said it could allocate max 128MB in OS X, I don't know if that is true or not but in any case if it's slow it's because the chip is slow, not because it needs more texture memory. A dedicated gpu with it's own ram would be faster.
